Keeping this Menopausal Woman in Mind - Stormy Weather

Do not do unto others as you would have them do unto you—they might have different tastes.

George Bernard Shaw

This past week began with rain in Phoenix, so much rain that for the first time since I emigrated here, the weather forced me to stay home from work and my daughter to miss school. Even my mother called from her sunny kitchen in rural Derry, where the weather is cooperating and will hopefully stay dry for the …

Take A Break! Five Ways Women Authors Can Unplug and Unwind

It’s been clinically proven that stress is one of the biggest deterrents to productivity, a balanced life, and overall wellness. Many women never turn off their working mind between the office and the home ... not to mention all the other places they devote their time and attention.

 

This is especially true of writers, whose work is not confined to the usual 9-to-5. Flexibility does not typically permit the usual breaks and relaxation afforded by a more structured workplace…

Single Women

So, you hate being single and you don’t understand why you can’t find the right man to share your life with. Every time you think you’ve found “the one,” he ends up being just like the others you’ve had before. You’ve questioned yourself, “Why do I keep attracting the same kind of man? What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I find a man that will respect and love me? Why do I attract men that like to cheat, lie, abuse me, and treat…

Women Write Out of the Binders

When I was young I had the hardest time learning to tie my shoes. My mother assured me with the wise words of “you know, you could eat an entire bear by yourself. Just take one bite at a time.” Her words helped me leave Velcro behind long ago, but I also thought of them again recently, in relation to my writing life.…

Claiming the Name of Writer

I did not consider myself a writer until I started working for Hedgebrook.

 

I was an actor who wrote occasionally, a theatre major who had gravitated toward non-profit communications, but not a writer.

 

When I was introduced to new people, the conversation would often go something like this:…

Chicks Versus Dicks

"Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”—that is the age-old phrase that best explains the seemingly endless battle of the sexes. And while we technically aren’t from different universes, this mantra indicates a truth that we have learned to accept: we differ in more ways than not.

They say opposites attract though, right?

THE BASICS

The differences between sexes are some of the first things noticeable at birth because of our telling…

Is This a True Story?

When you sit down to write, how much is truth and how much fiction? If you’re writing a personal story, should you call it a memoir or a novel?

Or, to put it differently, what constitutes truth in creative writing?

I gave this matter some thought after completing a…

The Kingdom and I: My Plight With Saudi Arabia

Good morning new day in Jeddah. It’s my last week here on this seasonal trip and, as usual, I’m getting anxious about my passport and my return visa. I always get anxious near the end of my trips to Saudi Arabia. Should I make that call and find out if it’s been issued and if I can have my passport back? Does that really speed it up or does it only aggravate? Sheer helplessness is my share as a woman, and as a “foreign” woman, whenever I visit.



What’s a return visa? That’s a long,… Continue

Anonymity and Misogyny online and How It's Pushing Us Out

As young, emerging writers, it is vital for us to take chances, putting ourselves out there for the world to see our work. The internet provides potential for us to do so, with online contests, boards, and blogs that connect us with an international community of sayers and doers. On that hopeful note, I entered a tournament-style short story contest called “…
